More on the Barnum mummy of Pa-Ib (
Detailed and informative summary of the work completed so far: "The scan was unique because the Toshiba Aquilion CAT Multi-Detection machine uses technology that is only about a year old and few radiology units have them. The technicians also did an MRI on the mummy, but MRIs work by finding water and certain hydrogens in the body. After 2,500 years, there was apparently not much of either in Pa-Ib. In the MRI machine, the 5-foot 3-inch mummy was invisible."
